PADI Tec 40

Tec 40 Course training in Phuket, Thailand with Aussie Divers Phuket

If you’re interested in technical diving, but haven’t yet met the prerequisites for the PADI Tec 45 course or the PADI Tec 50 course, you can consider enrolling in the PADI Tec 40 course. It is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course and consists of the first four dives. Because you can do one of these dives in confined water (such as a swimming pool), many divers start the PADI Tec 40 courses in the colder wetter months, ready to continue in open water when warmer and clearer weather arrives.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes.
